Lo­cal Horowitz fan re­ceives post­card from top author

The Argus - - NEWS -

It was a red let­ter day for lo­cal An­thony Horowitz fan, Sean O’Do­herty , when he re­ceived a post­card from the award win­ning author

A big fan of the Bri­tish writer, Sean had de­cided to write to him about his love of the ‘ Alex Rider’ series.

And he was thrilled to have re­ceived a hand­writ­ten re­sponse back from the lead­ing author!

In the post­card, he told how work is cur­rently on­go­ing on de­vel­op­ing the Alex Rider books into a tele­vi­sion series. He wrote ‘ One day you can let me know what you think!’ Sean was so thrilled to have re­ceived the re­sponse from his favourite author that he took it in to show staff at the Louth County Li­brary, where he is an avid reader.

‘Sean wanted to show the post­card to us all for Li­brary Ire­land Week,’ a spokes­woman told the Ar­gus.

‘He is a re­ally pro­lific reader, and I know he is a real fan of the An­thony Horowitz books, so it was a real treat for him to have re­ceived a re­sponse.’

The nov­el­ist and screen­writer spe­cialises in mys­tery and sus­pense. His work for young adult read­ers in­cludes The Di­a­mond Brothers series, the Alex Rider series, and The Power of Five series (also known as The Gate­keep­ers).
